The course aims to develop academic oral presentation skills following advanced reading texts on a variety of topics and subjects. The students will be able to acquire their academic reading skills such as finding the main idea, skimming, scanning, inferring information, guessing vocabulary from context, and perform effective oral and written presentations. It also aims to develop critical thinking, which enables students to respond to ideas in a well-organised written format. Other reading related writing skills such as paraphrasing and summarising are also dealt with.
